Sour Cherry Chicken
- 1 T. olive oil
- 2 large chicken breasts, cubed
- 2 large shallots, minced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup sauerkraut
- 1 cup frozen cherries
- Juice and zest of large orange
- 1 t. allspice
- 1 t. vanilla
In a large skillet, heat oil and cook shallots about 1 minute. Add chicken and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and cook until browned.
In the meantime, in a medium pot, mix saurkraut, orange juice and zest, cherries, allspice and vanilla. Stir and heat over medium heat until it comes to a boil.
When meat is cooked, add about 1/4 cup of the juice from the saurkraut mixture to the meat pan along with the peanut butter. Stir and cook just a bit longer to combine and melt the peanut butter (add a bit more juice if needed).
Plate the saurkraut mixture and top with the chicken. Add a cherry on top for garnish.
